IEA Report, Deploying Renewables 2011: Best and Future Policy Practice

I’m currently reading the new Deploying Renewables report. It is surprisingly accepting of renewables as mainstream, given that it’s coming from the IEA. Wow!! Just reading the executive summary, this chart caught my eye:

IEA Deploying Renewables 2011, Figure E.5

Don’t know why financing stops being important, I think if anything it becomes more important as you try to scale up, but otherwise, awesome chart for thinking about where a given market is on the adoption s-curve and where policy needs to be focused as a result.
